No LTE for You!!!

So 11 months in with SMART and LTE is still not available for both my

Globe is worse so I have to stay with SMART for now.

Tips & Tricks // Huawei E160 with OSX Mavericks

I have an old Huawei E160 3G USB Modem from Globe. Which has already been sim unlocked. Works well enough on Windows 7 but had issues with it on OSX Mavericks.

Well here is how you fix that.

1. Download the ZIP file
2. Unzip
3. Install huawei_universal_425_05.pkg to your OSX machine
4. Open Network and add your connection

5. Connect to the interwebs!!!
6. BTW you can also install the bundled app (usually a branded version of Huawei's Mobile Connect) from your 3G USB stick and use that if you don't want to manually input the settings.

Follow-up // It's LIVE MORE NOT LIE MORE

Got a response from SMART within two (2) days of sending my email complaint not bad response time really.

The content of the response while polite contained no apology from SMART.

SMART Customer Care did admit that the two (2) different staff, from (2) different wireless center branches lying to a customer are lapses on their end. (no shit, sherlock), also got the standard promise that my complaint has been forwarded to the concerned group. and standard thanks for reporting it in.

If you have experienced problems with SMART staff I do recommend you write in. This way SMART becomes aware of the situation and they can train their staff better.

I am attaching the polite and standard response below:


Dear Vincent,

Good day.
We understand your frustration and appreciate your transparency.  Yourfeedback has been forwarded to the concerned group as it is important tous.  Rest assured that Smart is exerting all efforts to correct anylapses on our end…
